Sorry it took me a while to get this journal out. Well the contest is closed! Thanks to everyone who submitted an entry! I'll post the results in a few days!
Okay, I've decided to extend the deadline 'cause I really want some more entries. The new deadline is now January 1st, 2013.
EDIT 2: Now with Entries!
EDIT: A good point was brought up so I added it to the rules. /EDIT
It's time for another contest, everyone! Get excited!
I've seen some people do some redesigns and redesign contests lately and my love for redesigns just kept going nuts. Redesigning characters is so much fun! I especially love it when people redesign my characters. It's so interesting to see another artist's take on my character and to see what ideas they have for them. Sadly I don't get random redesigns very often, hardly at all, so I figured why not make it a contest?
The objective: Pick any character of mine and redesign them. It can be ANY of my characters; original characters, fan characters, characters that I used to use but seem to have disappeared, all of them are fair game! Now what do I mean when I say redesign? I mean the whole shebang! I want you to change as little or as much about the character as you want; their fashion sense, their physical appearance, their backstory, whatever you want! Go nuts! Get creative!
And just so no one gets worried; no, I'm not planning on redoing any of my characters at the moment. These redesigns won't be permanent (unless I fall in love with it and feel the character could use a makeover, but we'll see about that), it's all for fun.
-You can pick any of my characters to redesign, original or fan made.
-You can have up to two entries. They can be two different characters or two redesigns of the same character, though I suggest that you don't focus on one character. Branch out!
- You are allowed to take the character of choice out of the fandom it's from and put it in an original story set up or even transfer it into another fandom if you want. Just keep in mind that if I don't know the fandom you put them into or if placing them into that fandom doesn't make sense for the character, it'll cost you.
-Base usage is acceptable but please put effort into it. Lazy entries won't be looked highly upon.
-Absolutely NO recolors of someone else's art or any other type of art thievery. Steal someone's art and you will be disqualified.
-Please comment on this journal with a link to your entry once it's done.
Deadline: January 1
Things are gonna be a bit different for this contest. There won't be first, second, or third place prizes. Nope. Instead there will be different categories. Each category will have a prize.
-Most different from original design (Winner will receive one fully colored request)
-Most unique (Winner will receive one fully colored request)
-Most eye-catching (Winner will receive one fully colored request)
-Best backstory change (Winner will receive one fully colored request)
-Scariest (Interpret meaning as you will) (Winner will receive one fully colored request)
-Sarah's Personal Favorite (Winner will receive one fully colored request, if not already chosen in another category.)
-Honorable mentions (I will pick a few of these depending on the number of entries I get. Each honorable mention will receive one sketch request.)
Alright, guys! Go forth and redesign! Good luck!
